On the head for the first 4 rows straight and then transverse to the position of the several pins. Begin at basic chain between 5. + 6. st, 7. + 8. st, 9. + 10. st, 11. + 12. st, 13. + 14. st and 15. + 16. st.

Assembly:
Sew the side of corpus together with frontside and backside. Stuff just enough to keep piece from collapsing in on itself (overstuffing will cause die to bulge too much and not keep its shape).
Sew the side of head together with frontside and backside. Stuff just enough to keep piece from collapsing in on itself (overstuffing will cause die to bulge too much and not keep its shape).
Sew the frontside and backside of neck together, the sew to corpus. Stuff more as corpus and head. Sew neck and head together. Pay attention to position neck in center of corpus and head and let the backside of neck shape a hemicycle form.
Sew the pins with round side to head.
